WEB GIS Portal for District Rural Development Agency

 This webgis portal is the successful outcome of the first ever joint intiative taken by District Rural Development Agency , District   and Centre for Geo informatics , CSK Himachal Pradesh Agricultural university, Palampur.

                 A research project entitled Integrated Geodatabase model for effective planning of DRDA was funded by the DRDA with objectives of using the modern technologies of Geographic  Information System(GIS) and Remote sensing(RS) in the various ongoing development programmes of DRDA e.g. Integrated watershed development programme(IWDP), Integrated watershed management programme(IWMP), MNREGA, etc. for planning and monitoring purposes.

                 In the initial stages of the project Panchayat level spatial datasets specially  base maps, drainage maps, landcover maps which are not available at the Blocks are generated. These maps have been used in various planning phases under various development programmes of DRDA.

                 The Asset Specific spatial datasets for the blocks at village level are also being Mapped for 15 blocks  of District which will contain the complete information of the various assets alongwith the locations (GPS coordinates) of the assets.(e.g Check dams, Jeepable roads, Kuhls, Land development activities. Plantation area, etc.)

                  These maps are then made available at the concerned blocks in the customized in house developed Software which could be used for regeneration of the maps with some additional information at the block level itself.

                 These geodatasets are also made available at the WebGIS portal maintained exclusively by the Centre for Geo informatics, CSK Himachal Pradesh Agricultural University, Palampur, which gets regular updates on the new spatial datasets.
